  • We got married on 5/3/19 and had the most amazing wedding. Joe, our maitre'd was one of my favorite people to work with during wedding planning. Even our guest talked about how great he was. He made sure my husband and I had everything we needed and also made sure we ate which was huge!! We had a special memorial chair set up for my mom during the ceremony and Joe went as far as to give me that chair for our sweetheart table. It meant more to me than I am sure he realized. Don't hesitate to reach out to the Westwood but be sure to work with Cathy, Joe and Elizabeth. We wish we could do the day all over again!

  • After visiting countless venues, we had finally came across The Westwood. We fell in love with the venue. It is a family owned business and that becomes obvious as soon as you meet with the staff. They are so kind and friendly. During the planning process, Cindy and Cathy guided us each step of the way to customize our day exactly how we imagined. Some things we didn’t know what to choose and they kindly provided advice and direction. Joe was our Maitre D. We met him two days before our wedding for rehearsal. During rehearsal, we were like two deer in headlights. We realized we had not planned those tiny details in the ceremony. He noticed our slight panic and reassured us that everything was going to be perfect. On the day of the wedding, he nailed it! He was juggling every aspect of the ceremony, reception, and everything in between like a true professional. We think back to the day and are still shocked how perfectly he made everything flow. We owe this to the Westwood for providi... Read more

  • The Westwood exceeded our expectations for our wedding reception! All the way from booking our date with Cathy - she is amazing! She always answered my emails with my silly questions and always made me feel at ease. Every appointment with her was thorough, and i never felt leaving uneasy or overwhelmed which EASILY happens with wedding planning. The day of our wedding we were greeted immediately by our maitre d who was one of the sweetest women ive ever met before! the whole night she was like a superhero who always made sure we were OK and had everything we needed. All night we heard how beautiful the room looked and how amazing the food was, which made me feel so great! Every detail we asked for was executed and everything about the reception was just phenomenal. I would 100% recommend The Westwood to everyone i know because they are affordable, they work with you throughout the ENTIRE process, and they will make everything you ask for happen. THANK YOU !!!

  • My husband and I were married at the Westwood on Nov 2 2018 and we cannot day enough great things about this venue and everyone that works there! From the beginning of the wedding process I was a very picky bride- visiting or contacting over 30 venues in the state of NJ. When I walked into the Westwood and sat down with ERIN WILLIAMS I knew I had found the place. I wanted a romantic warm late autumn vibe with an “affordable” price tag (does affordable really exist in NJ?) and The Westwood was it! We were married in the Lena Ballroom which is the upstairs of the Westwood. It features a beautiful piano and wood accents. It has multiple fireplaces and warm lighting. The walls are beige and mauve with many mirrors and wall sconces. I added to it by bringing in my own centerpieces which lit up and many many flickering candles. It was so romantic. Erin Williams at the Westwood was a dream coordinator. From the beginning he was so willing to make my dream a reality from the decor to the ... Read more

  • Erin was the best throughout our whole wedding adventure. Going in everyone was amazing and treated us with so much kindness and respect. The food was great and my wedding turned out soo much better than I expected. Obviously, I was worried and rushing and still working full-time for it all. I did not take off of work for any of this. When they tell you not to worry trust them and dont worry. I had my 8th grade formal here back in like 2006 and I had a blast then too! If I could do it all again I would.

  • I picked this venue because I have been here about three times and fell head over heels for this place. The food, the price and the people that help you at The Westwood sold me. I'm telling you, as AMAZING as the food is here, you wouldn't believe the price they give you. Gorgeous in the inside and amazing rooms. Recommended this place to everyone I know. The people that work there go above and beyond for you. A+++

  • My guest loved the venue! Everything about it. The food was raved about, it's a gorgeous place and its family owned so they really care about each wedding. Cathy helped me with all the planning and she was great. Joe was my maitrde and he was the most amazing thing to happen to our wedding. He was everywhere at once and kept everything running seamlessly. He has the best personality and I would highly recommend the Westwood.. such a great night!

  • My husband and I got married on November 15, 2015 at the Westwood. We had almost a two year engagement so we booked our venue fairly early on. The Westwood is very affordable at the same time providing high quality service. Cathy was with us from the very beginning and was always responsive and honest. Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Everyone said everything comes together and they were right! They worked with all of our vendors to ensure everything was set up the way I had outlined it. Joe the maitre'd was very helpful. We found out right before the ceremony that we could not have dancing on the clouds do to the floor (We changed from the upstairs ballroom to the main ballroom) and I was so upset. However, Joe worked quickly with my DJ and lighting guy and came up with an idea to use the clouds by the sundae bar and it was a hit! Cathy came to me on the day of our wedding, I did not know she would be there and hugged me. I thanked her and I really met it. The Westwood exceeded our... Read more

  • From the moment we walked through the doors and spoke to the staff, we knew The Westwood was where we wanted to hold our wedding reception. Each of the available rooms is beautiful, and the food was delicious. Members of our family have Celiac disease and must have gluten-free meals. Cross contamination can be a major issue, but the Westwood was extremely careful and made sure everyone was able to enjoy each course. Everything the entire evening met or exceeded our expectations, and we cannot recommend The Westwood enough for any event you may have.

  • This is my second event that I have planned at the Westwood and I have had the pleasure of working with Cathy. She's amazing, organized and professional. I am a wedding planner who have been in the business for over 17 years. I worked with Cathy on a wedding on August 2nd and Cathy and the staff at the Westwood were beyond amazing. SPECIAL PRAISES and KUDOS should go to the Maitre'D, Betty who was beyond amazing. She was on top of every detail and so attentive not only to the bride and groom but to all their guests. Most of the guests attending the wedding were in the hospitality industry themselves and they all complimented on how wonderful Betty was, the food was delicious and fresh and the staff were friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this venue and hope my company and I have the pleasure of working with Cathy and her staff at The Westwood!

  • I can not begin to explain how WONDERFUL our entire experience was with The Westwood. I actually had another appointment with a different venue but once we met with Cathy and saw the venue...it was a no-brainer. Our intuitions were right! Throughout the entire interaction, appointment, conversation with Cathy I literally felt like I was the only bride she was working with. I mean, every time I called, even if I had to leave a message, she was ALWAYS prompt to return my calls. I almost couldn't believe she had other parties and events booked!!!! Her professionalism, personality, sweet demeanor just floored us every time. EVEN OUR KIDS FELL IN LOVE WITH HER. This was no average or mediocre customer service about this 7 month experience. She just went above and beyond every single time. From the receptionist to the maître de l'événement. Fabulous...just fabulous!!!! Anywhere else you will pay DOUBLE and not even have as wonderful experience as you will at The Westwood. Oh... Read more

  • The Westwood is a nice venue. We had plenty of space to accommodate our 200 guests. Cathy assisted us with our wedding planning process. She was always there when I called and was very helpful. We had a few last minute cancelations due to death, and Cathy was able to refund the seats for us. She also writhed with us to create a custom menu which was delicious and all the guests loved the food. My professionalism rating is lower because of the day of my wedding. We had a bartender who was EXTREMELY unprofessional. From tasting people's drinks, falling asleep on the bar,putting her hands in drinks, to trying to fight one of my guests. My guests were complaining thinking she was either intoxicated or high. My maid of honor made multiple complaints to the assistant maitre d, who did nothing to change the situation because the bartender was her wife. Eventually the bar teneder was replaced, but she was allowed to come back later. This is the only complaint I have, and im sure the Wes... Read more
